    Default Vista SP2 (beta) Bug - default gateway address vanished



    SP2 beta arrived, bugs too (I believe)

    My problem - Installed <400 mb SP 2 beta through AU.



    On rebooting IPv4 default gateway address is vanished.

    "Fine it happens" I thought. Now whenever I reboot that address need to enter manually !!!

    This is after sp2 beta installation only.

    Can anyone give a solution ?

    It was a known problem even before SP1 release and Microsoft fixed it in SP1. Even they released a hotfix before SP1 to fix this problem.

    Since the hotfix was released for Vista RTM, it'll not help you as you are using SP2.

    What you can do is, provide ipconfig /renew command each time you reboot your system. It might help you.

    Else you'll need to wait for next SP2 build or a separate hotfix from Microsoft.

    Thanx for the reply VG. Initially I misunderstood it as Trojan DNSchanger. I googled and no same like behavior found. DNS Changer Trojan affect some other way. I have KIS 2009, Webroot Spysweeper(active), A Squared, Malwarebytes, Spyware S&D and Defender all actively protecting. So Trojan is not the case. Probably it may bug. I will try the VG solution and report back.
